On 7th of December (2015) OPUS – one of the most famous austrian pop/rock bands – gave an concert in the opera house of my hometown Graz. All the incomes of these evening were passed on to support the projects of the organisation „Menschen für Menschen„.
Since 2009 OPUS play every two years in the opera house in order to collect money and to give the audience an superb evening filled with their hits. Even more, they invite aritsts to play with them on stage. This year they invited Willi Resetarits (alias Kurt Ostbahn), Michael Vatter und Stipsits, Ganster & Bäer. It was a great evening and I can only recommend to visit one of their concerts!!!
Also, I had the honour to provide a 60 minute mix of my electronic music in order to „warm-up“ the people one hour before the show started, and now I present you this mix on webradio station modul303 and (a week later) on my mixcloud page.
Consider this mix as a retrospective of my work as composer and remixer:
The first three mixes present the collaboration part in my music. Having the chance to work with other artists is always challenging and great fun. In this section I present you tracks with Mark Dorricott, Ewald Pfleger and Stephen Sherrard.
The next three tracks present my own music, where I focus on my own skills and try to tell my personal stories and feelings.
The last three tracks present my passion for remixing songs from other artists. It´s always great fun to work with the music from others, transposing it into something new (and different) while – at the same time – trying to keep the „soul“ of the original track. I´ve choosen tracks from Claudio Fiore, Ann Grace & Marie Therese and Silvino.
